The all-new iteration of Sackboy’s platform-hopping antics, due to hit PS3 and PS4 in November, brings with it a new cast of characters.

Developed by Sumo Digital and Xdev, LittleBigPlanet 3 will introduce Swoop, Oddsock, and Toggle, with each personality sporting its own unique move-set.

First up, there’s Swoop who can fly and access area otherwise unreachable. He/She can also pick up objects and carry other characters.

Next up there’s Oddsock, who is lightening quick and can wall jump and wall slide. His fast movements are said to be far quicker than any character in previous LBP games.

Finally there’s Toggle, named as such due to his ability to change size. Toggle can be big or small which opens up all kinds of gameplay opportunities.

LittleBigPlanet 3 will once again focus heavily on player-made content; in the creator tool players will be able to design levels that feature up to two of the new characters, including Sackboy.
